  1. Tamra,

    I love that mug!!! What an awesome quote! 🙂

    Charleston is such a wonderful place for a writer’s retreat. I lived there for several years and enjoyed the beach retreat the RWA chapter (Lowcountry Romance Writers) planned every year.

    Sounds like you had a divine time! And came home with a little something to make you feel good year-round!

    Hugs, Pris

  2. Yes, Pris, Charleston is a WONDERFUL place. I hope to go back there again one day soon!!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    I love this, Tamra. My husband grew up in Charleston and his family still lives there and it is one of my most favorite cities of all time. It is a wonderful place to write and “fill the creative well”.
    And I love the mug. I want one. Seriously. 🙂

    • Oh, I LOVE that you get to go to Charleston often to visit family! It truly is a magical place! Maybe we need to organize a firebird retreat there next year…and I’ll bring the mugs this time. :0)

    That’s a great mug, Tammy. I smile at pens, too. In fact, I browse in office supply stores–and frequently buy more pens.

  5. Kay, good to know I’m not alone in my obsession with pens! My husband is the luckiest guy in the world. If he doesn’t know what to get for my birthday or Christmas,he just buys me a new pen! I squeee every time.

    Love the mug. I have a special place in my heart for Anne Marie. Before I was published, I bid on and won a full-length manuscript critique from her. Because of her comments and suggestions, I sat down and rewrote THE LETTER from page one. I sold the story soon after that. I doubt the original manuscript would have ever sold.

    Anyway, my favorite thing on my desk is something my husband gave me. It’s made of wood and is a cat asleep atop two books…cause you know, cats and books, what’s not to love about those two things.

    I love the mug quote!! I need one. 🙂 Ooo, Charleston is such a wonderful place to visit. I feel enriched when I wander around that city and hear stories about its history.
    And Sandra Owens will have to give up that cat on books item..really…I want it!
    Thanks for sharing…and pens are exciting. I have pencils, too. 🙂

  8. I love that mug, Tammy! It almost made me cry!

    Writing retreats are awesome. Every quarter my critique partners and I get together for a four-day writing/plotting/brainstorming/encouragement session. There are four of us, including the awesome KD Fleming!

  9. “The keyboard trembles, just the tiniest bit” How awesome is that quote?? The retreat sounds fabulous and inspiring.

    And I love that we both have “pen mugs”!:)

  10. OH! I love that mug saying! Absolutely perfect. Yes, we do need to hear those words of advice so often, don’t we? Writers are such an insecure lot. (And I know I’m the worst of the bunch, and I appreciate all your words of encouragement always, Tamra!)

    And yay for having pens that make you smile! My daughter and I are the same way. (And my mom, for that matter.) We always buy each other “exciting” pen sets for Christmas that none of the guys in our family understand.

  11. Jamie Wesley says:

    OMG, I LOVE that mug!! We need posters and T-shirts!

  12. Tammy! Your mug rocks, and so do you!!! So funny that Kieran posted to our WRW loop just this morning about “if you get to Charleston, I’ll show you around.” Seems like fate to me. Better tell Sharon we’re off to crash her sister in law’s town. haha.
    I have all my pens in an Atlanta mug I won in a raffle basket by Shea Berkley. Do you know her? A little thing, but very feisty. 🙂 Unlike us–both sweet tempered and mild mannered. And by the way, what’s that nonsense of which you speak? “Many of us are introverted by nature…” ??? I KNOW you’re not including yourself among those “many,” right?
    Can’t wait to see you in July!!! Miss you!!!!! Who are you gonna get to do your shopping this year? lol

    • Hi Kim!

      I’ll definitely miss my personal shopper! Maybe you should drive to NY? LOL

      I’m going to a party in the Presidential Suite after the signing on Wednesday evening and we have to bring goodies. Terri Osburn and I are on the lookout for a store with party supplies. 🙂 Let me know if you need some too! Can’t wait to see you in July!

  13. We all need such a mug! I love the idea of a keyboard trembling because it knows it’s colluding in the production of something unique and emotional. Your Charleston writers’ party sounds wonderful. I suddenly got this idea of what South Carolina food is lie. Wish I could have been there!
